Mount Vernon was a large operation and managing all of the domestic work was Martha Washington.

Overseeing a large staff of enslaved cooks, housemaids, butlers, laundresses, and seamstresses, she was described by historian Ron Chernow as, “a bustling, hardworking housewife, occupied with domestic chores until the end of her life, and was fully equal to the administrative demands of Mount Vernon.”
